We, as veterans, legatees, and supporters of the Special Operations communities of all the Armed Forces, have noted with dismay and deep alarm the recent stream of highly damaging leaks of information about various aspects of America’s shadow war in the overall War on Terror. Our principles are the same as when we were in active service — Duty, Honor, Country.
Our goals are:
To emphasize the pressing need for the nation and its representatives to understand the value of our Constitution and actively support a return to its application in all phases of government;
To illuminate the failed operational security environment of the Administration and to provide the public with accurate information about these repeated releases of highly classified information;
To restore accountability in government and with it the trust in our government that We The People deserve and demand.
